Adaptive Cruise Control Revolutionizes 2014 Chevy Impala

Cruise control has become more common than a preteen girl who likes Justin Bieber and is utilized in almost every car on the market. Since it’s introduction to the automotive world, cruise control has become more and more adaptive, gaining the ability to slow down and speed up in sync with another vehicle. While this innovation makes driving a long distance easier, the technology doesn’t slow down your car if the car in front of you stops suddenly.

Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac of Greer, SCChevrolet has decided to change this with the introduction of its ground-breaking Adaptive Cruise Control system, which will be implemented in the 2014 Chevy Impala. This new system will be able to stop your car completely when it senses a sudden stop from the car you’re following, therefore keeping you safer than ever before. The system will also be paired with a second system that is capable of stopping the car if a hazard suddenly appears in the roadway.

“Results indicated that brake-apply rates were 25 times lower under freeway conditions relative to manual driving,” said James Sayers, a research scientist with the Human Factors Group, in a statement. “These results suggest that Adaptive Cruise Control can substantially reduce the workload and stress associated with the everyday task of car following.”
